New York Yankees Superstar On Pace To Return Next Week

The New York Yankees find themselves at the bottom of the American League East early in the season with a 17-16 record, and while there's plenty of reasons for this, it's safe to say that the injuries have begun catching up to them. 

Now, it appears things are getting better, as starting pitcher Luis Severino is inching closer to a return, and now the team have revealed that MVP Aaron Judge is likely going to be activated on Tuesday, bringing a much needed presence back into this lineup.

With a tough hill to climb in the AL East, the Yankees need everything to go right in the coming weeks, and with Judge's power and stellar defence in the outfield, this could be exactly what they need to turn it around.
